Broccoli Salad

Broccoli is my favorite vegetable. This salad is from my friend Dionne Liddiard who is an amazing cook and collector of recipes. She has many of the same recipes we all have, but for some reason, her versions always are a little bit better than the others. She is an incredibly creative person with limitless energy. She is the only stay-at-home mom that I think deserves a nanny (although she does not have one, I could justify her getting one.)


4 cups small broccoli florets

1 cup seedless green grapes, quartered

½ cup chopped celery

½ cup chopped purple onion

½ cup raisins

½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

¼ cup sunflower seeds

¼ cup bacon, cooked, drained and torn into small pieces

Combine in large bowl. Mix together: 1 cup mayonnaise and ¼ cup brown sugar. Toss with salad. Chill until served.
